Engaged Life; busy life: Sri Lanka relief work

This morning David phone Amrita, our Amida chaplain in Manchester, to see how her plans were developing. Amrita has been planning to visit a village in Sri Lanka at the invitation of IBRO (the International Buddhist Relief Organisation; a small Buddhist charity based in UK) Having talked with members of the Sri Lankan community she decided to bring her visit forward. As a result she is current fund raising and collecting goods that can be sent our by the Sri Lankan High Commission. This morning she appeared on TV making the appeal and she has also been doing radio broadcasts. Next Tuesday she will go to Sri Lanka by air, paid for by supportive Sri Lankan families.

With her experience setting up a health centre that now serves 70 villages in rural Zambia on a shoestring and a lot of ingenuity, she will no doubt be a great help in working with people to rebuild shattered lives.
